Edgy, contemporary and entirely original, Bespoke returns for a season of dynamic new works created by renowned local and international choreographers. Expect a colourful merging of classical technique with emotional depth in a trio of contemporary works that explores what dance is and how far it can go.  

Three innovative choreographers will collaborate with dancers and artists to create three bright new pieces of storytelling inspired by music, visual art, and emotion. 

Wakka Wakka and Kombumerri choreographer Katina Olsen joins us for the first time, from a career spanning from Bangarra Dance Theatre to companies throughout Australia and internationally. Milena Sidorova is an award-winning Ukrainian-Dutch choreographer and Young Creative Associate at the Dutch National Ballet. Australian choreographer and Queensland Ballet Associate Choreographer Jack Lister has created mainstage works for Queensland Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet, and Australasian Dance Collective to critical and audience acclaim. 

Now in its seventh year, Bespoke offers audiences an opportunity to witness elite ballet dancers in exciting modern spaces. Intricately detailed, musically brilliant, and always alluring, this new season will ignite the senses and entice audiences into a realm of artistic possibility. 


Important information

Music for Katina Olsen’s work is commissioned by Southern Cross Soloists (SXS) and the SXS Didgeridoo Commissioning Project, featuring Wakka Wakka didgeridoo soloist and SXS Artist in Residence, Chris Williams.
